There are many Cat Simulator games out there. The Cat Simulator game that I am checking out today is the mobile game from Swift Apps. I am a cat lover and any game that says I can play as a naughty cat and cause all kinds of trouble for humans and other pets sounds like a fun time to me.
How to Download Cat Simulator
You can download Cat Simulator from Google Play or iTunes (where it goes by the name Cat Simulator 2015). Take note that there are a lot of games that go by this name and they are all different and of different quality too. We think this one is one (offered by a Polish developer) of the best, if not the best cat simulator out there.
The Game Review
The presentation of the game is a bit on the rough side. I played the game on a Sony Xperia L4 and while it did not look horrible, it certainly lacked a bit of finesse. It is not so much the visuals, more the animations of the people and the cat you play as that feel a bit on the robotic side.
There are many different locations that the game has to offer. These locations range from a small apartment, a backyard, a supermarket, and a large house. I was impressed at the different places the game lets your feline self go. Getting to go to different places helps keep you invested in what is going on.
The main game mode has you picking from a few different cats. You then need to complete a series of missions before you can move onto the next location. These missions range from knocking over a vase, teasing the dog, wrecking the backyard, and causing chaos for the humans. It is pretty much stuff and if you have a cat, you will certainly get a kick out of it.
You do a bunch of missions and you get to move to a new location. It is pretty basic stuff, but it is also a lot of fun. The game controls easy enough with the joystick on the left and the action buttons on the right of the screen. I had no issue with the controls or knowing what I had to do next.
As well as doing the main missions, Cat Simulator also has a few other modes for you to play with. The time trial mode is what I actually spend the most time with, trying to do what I can in the allotted time has a really classic arcade feel to things. There is also a multiplayer mode, but I have not managed to give this a try.
This is a mobile game and there are different in-app purchases such as cosmetics that you can get. I never spent a penny on the game and had a great time while doing so. It is a bit on the nose with its in-app purchases but I never felt that they were necessary for me to get the most out of the game.
I enjoyed my time with Cat Simulator. I am not sure it is the kind of game I will go back to time and time again. Yet, there is a real charm here and if you are a cat lover then you are going to be smiling most of the time you play this game. It does have in-app purchases, but there is no need to spend money if you do not want to.
